From a bottle, pours clear yellow with a thin white quickly dispersing head. Aroma is like corn-flakes soaked in Bud since last night (not that I'd have experience with that). Taste is not offensive, sweet malt and some hops with distracting corn and rice flavors.

Even for a lager, look is not great.

Hoppy and refreshing aroma, good for the sun...

Fairly terrible taste, just too malty and heavy, needs more hops or fruit...one of my least favorite beers from recent memory

Plenty of clarity, light adjunct yellow color. Head boosts up and down in no time. Aroma is so clean, lacking almost anything in the malt or hop character department, there is a slight cereal corn flake like smell going on.

Taste, well you definitely get a massive amount of carbonation but that is more about the mouth feel. I guess you could say this is refreshing, this is good for when you are in a shit hole that has suspect water. I guess you could just pound this and hydrate probably. Seriously, while there are no off flavors, this is up there with Bud 55 or Miller 64 in terms of making a light adjunct lager with almost no ingredients or substance to it.

Poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a light golden amber with an effervescent with head that dissipates to nothing except a thin ring around the glass. Light aroma of grainy biscuit malt and mild grassy hops. Flavor starts with grainy malt with a hint of biscuit, then fades away, revealing slightly astringent grassy hops with light graininess. Light bodied with active carbonation. The very first part of the taste gives hope, because it has a bit of grainy biscuit, but the flavor fades quickly leaving only the dry part of the malt and lightly grassy hops that are more bitter than flavorful. A mediocre adjunct lager that leaves only hope for a better introduction to Argentinian ales.
